How to Finish Up Your 2008 Smartly

So 2008 is coming to an end in just a few days and we are welcoming the new year. The question is…

How would a smart entrepreneur finish up the year?

Here are 4 important secrets that top 1% most successful people use today…

۱٫ Review Your Past Year and Find the Treasures

One whole year…

۱۲ full months…

۳۶۵ days…

Can you imagine how many valuable lessons and experiences we’ve gained? All the mistakes we made and things we learned. And if you just walk out of 2008 without noticing and remembering them, it is like throwing away your one year’s valuable life.

And then we’ll end up going through 2009 making the same mistakes, unless we learn from the past to use the opportunities in the future.

So let’s take a careful look at your 2008 and find the treasures to use for faster success in the coming new year.

۲٫ Sharpen Your Goals for Your Next Year

The next step is choosing which goals you want to target in 2009. After all without knowing where exactly you’re heading to, you can never get there, can you?

Check out this blog post to find out how…

Now the third secret…

۳٫ Keeping Balance: Are You Giving a Fair Share to Your Life?

"Balance is the key to ultimate success and happiness."

Ask any success mentor and they’ll you this as well.

We can’t be truly and fully successful and happy unless we give a fair share to all areas of our life. This includes…

  • Your happiness , spending time on things you love, and having fun
  • Your career , achieving your business goals and growing your income
  • Your relationships and love life , because life feels empty without our loved ones
  • Your health , because you can’t enjoy the rest without it

The secret is, every time you feel unhappy and not satisfied in your life, one or more of these areas are missing.

It means the Balance is not there.

So on the last days of 2008, how about we take a good look at our life and see which of these parts we need to get to more? How do you think you can add more Balance to your life?

Write down your ideas now…

۴٫ Chill Out and Enjoy the Holidays!

So the last but not the least, take some time off from work, stress or worrying over small things, and just have fun!

You certainly deserve it after a full year of hard work. 🙂

Happy holidays to you and your family!

    Hi Ladan!
    Great post! Sometimes it looks easy how to make things happen,but in reality it`s very difficult,sometimes you think that now you make the right decisions, and if you look better you see many of the old mistakes.
    I wish you nice holidays and an outstanding 2009! 🙂

    The post is just for me. I wouldn’t say I achieve much in the passing year as I didn’t really draw an attainable goal for the year. I’ve learnt my lessons,however.

    Have a rewarding holiday and new year ahead.

    Yes, I agree with you. Reflecting on our past lessons gives us lots of power to act smarter in the future.

    Great blog, by the way. Happy holidays!


    Thank you for your kind words. It’s a pleasure to know the tips have helped you. 🙂


    Thanks! I wish you too all the best in the coming new year. 🙂


    Yes, I understand what you mean. We need to have a clear, targeted goal to achieve it. When we don’t know where we are going, how can we get there?

    Wish you more success in 2009!
